The B'nai Jacob (est. 1886) was located first on St. Constant (now called De Bullion), then on Fairmount from 1918 until 1956. The Chevra Kadisha (est. 1893) began as a burial society affiliated with a synagogue. It was incorporated in 1901 and had a variety of locations, until in 1954 members began to plan and build a new permanent sanctuary and community centre. Although the B'nai Jacob merged in the middle of this construction, it was incorporated into the new building's plans. The new synagogue, which also houses an afternoon school and more recently the Creative Social Centre for seniors, opened in 1958.
